An Italian inscription on this candlestick’s base states: ‘May and June 1468’. Carlo di Niccola di Messer Vieri de’ Medici was then gonfaloniere, the highest office in Florence. He commissioned the candlestick from the renowned sculptor Verrocchio to commemorate the peace of 1468, marking the end of the war against Venice. The candlestick stood in the town hall of Florence.
